Factsheet- Fighting against the Mexico City Policy
Without US funding, just in MSI program countries, we estimate 6.5 million more unintended pregnancies and 2.2 million more abortions during President Trump’s first term.
The Policy obliges all non-US international organizations in receipt of US Government funding to neither perform nor "actively promote" abortion, regardless of the funding source. It makes organizations like MSI ineligible for US development funds for telling a woman that abortion is a legal option in her country, referring her to another provider, or advocating for abortion rights with alternative resources.
